No Blacks No Dogs No Irish 2 Months ago  
A common sign in the windows of boarding houses/hotels up to 50 years ago - or 'No coloureds No children No trogs'

Yet another example of our racist past - which was rectified, to an extent - by the Race Relations Act 1968.

Racism though clearly remains endemic - for example in football grounds - despite the football associations' best efforts.


But it take a specific event to remind us , every now and then...

Racism affects all creeds and skin colour.

I have had insults thrown at me for being white in USA and heard more jokes about the Irish than you probably had hot dinners. Some is funny some is downright insulting.

NASCAR has banned confederacy flag. I have heard arguments for and against it's usage. I probably still have one in the attic some where, it's about 30 years old. It was the norm to see in the Southern States almost everywhere.

My friends in Texas, don't fly it no more either it causes to much hassle for them. They now just fly both Lone Star flag and Old Glory out side their homes.

They celebrate their Southern pride in other ways like have a superb BBQ cookouts.

The media loves ‘isms’. Shoving the statue of the former slave trader into the water is bound to perpetuate the issue indefinitely. Only doing things in a spirit of love and forgiveness can change things for the better. Why not resurrect the statue and place a garland of flowers around its neck?

Why not get rid of football then? It makes more sense than removing a lump of metal in Bristol.

Then if football was banned then everything else would have to follow.

Why shouldn't it? If you accept that racism should be stamped out, why not remove something that appears to encourage it?
Go the whole hog. Dont stop at the statues. Bulldoze universities, streets, cities, everything that has "links" to racism and the slave trade. (everything).

And then when its all nice and sterile and untainted we can build it all up again, using cheap sweatshop labour from abroad.

It be interesting to see how many fans will turn up to NASCAR. I think the Confederate flag is dated.

I was called shockingly insulting names when a (beautiful) youth due to very Slavic looks.

Mind you the Sports Master, a good looking young Olympian dubbed me Pearl of The Orient which got many laughs when he used it. Camp bastard.

An old BDSM club I knew with members being LGBT, still couldn't be more camp than Hedda.
